POWERSHELL SCRIPT COPY fILES USING ROBOCOPYPOWERSHELL SCRIPT COPY fILES USING ROBOCOPY

Please find powershell code which will assist you in copying data from source location to destination using robocopy.exe.

This script will display progress  of copy along with time remaining in readable format.

 

System Requirements:

  • A windows machine
  • Powershell (with windows 8 and 2012 above no need to install also with windows 2008).
  • Run script as administrator.

Please find code below:
